Great Year-around Climate!

  1. Pueblo West has a dry, mild climate with many days of sunshine all year around.
  2. Summer days do bump up over 100 degrees F.
    1. However, temperatures plummet shortly after the sun sets. The temperature frequently drops into the upper Fifties before morning.
    2. Because early morning temperatures are so low, the temperature does not climb high quickly. The peak temperature is usually only a very short time in the afternoon.
    3. By mid-afternoon it has usually clouded up and there is frequently a brief thundershower to cool things off again.
    4. Evenings are gorgeous. You can enjoy beautiful summer evenings on your deck, patio, or out for a walk.
    5. The humidity is very low, making temperatures much more comfortable.
    6. The dry climate means there are usually very few mosquitoes to spoil outdoor activities.
  3. Some winter nights do drop below zero degrees F.
    1. However, interspersed are many winter days that are sunny and mild, getting into the 40's, 50's, and even 60's.
    2. It does snow. However, Pueblo West is a "Winter Oasis" where larger snowstorms frequently go around in all directions. It is common to get 4-5 inches of snow here when areas all around get 2 feet of snow.
    3. The snow we do get usually melts quickly due to Chinook winds. When winds come down the face of the mountains west of us they compress and become warmer.
  4. We have some of the most spectacular sunsets anywhere in the world. The mountains to the west silhouette prominently in the sunsets.
